YOU HAVE QUESTIONS? WE HAVE ANSWERS!
This month, school boards across Manitoba are holding their inaugural meetings, which include the election of board chairs and vice-chairs. For anyone new to the role (or just wanting a refresher course on meeting procedure), check out our Practical Procedure series of Division Dispatches. The Short Answers to Common Questions dispatch is a good place to start. It provides answers to ten common questions about voting and interpersonal/ meeting dynamics, based on the requirements of The Public Schools Act and Robert’s Rules of Order. Others in the series take a deeper look at topics such as abstaining, committee of the whole, suspending debate, and revisiting a decision. Most are available in both text and video format, and some include additional resources.
